What are essential oils?

When you enjoy the scent of a flower, you are experiencing the aromatic qualities of an essential oil.

Essential oils are natural and powerful aromatic compounds that are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots and flowers of plants and trees.

They protect plants against environmental threats and when they are extracted and distilled for purity, potency and efficacy, they can be used in food preparation, beauty treatment and health-care practices. Their benefits have been known for centuries!

How can essential oils enhance your wellness?

The delicate ratio of aromatic constituents found in any given essential oil are what make it unique and give it specific benefits.

Essential oils are diverse and can be used for a wide range of physical and emotional wellness applications. For example, Peppermint oil is known to alleviate stomach upset and Lavender oil is known for its calming effects.

Why are essential oils so effective for emotional health?

Because the aromatic molecules in essential oils have direct access to the limbic area, or emotional seat, of the brain, smell is the fastest way to affect mood.

Inhaling the scents of specific oils can elicit profound emotional responses to help you uplift your spirits, find comfort and balance, or ease anxiety.
